They played 85 shows in 80' and 81 shows in 81'(give or take a show or two)

Lost Sailor -> Saint
80'-50 times played
81'-37 times played

Althea
80'-59 times played
81'-44 times played

That would put Sailor/Saint being played at a little more than half of the shows over that two year span and Althea at about 2 out of three. Being on the scene I can tell you that was far to often.

I think I saw Little Red Rooster at each of my first 5 shows.

Funny it was the song that popped my head open at the 5/13/83 show - sent me running for shelter. Still on the long slow recovery from that. I saw them drop a whole bunch of folks with that same song at Ventura one year. Literally people were collapsing all around us, it was a warm day, but not that warm. Phil dropped a bomb and a bunch of people buckled under the weight of it. I remember the look of panic on peoples faces, there was some power there that can not be explained. Not gonna happen with your home stereo...unless you are John Meyer.

Some seriously scarey fun going on.
